Track Name: Take All This
Verse 1:
You were everything
You were supposed to be
My fucking destiny
You meant the world to me

Hook:
But now I know
I wasn’t right
For you

Chorus:
How do I take all this shit
When I know the last time we kissed
Was it wasn’t it the end

Verse 2:
I know now that I am alone
And now there’s nothing left to show
That you and I had ever built a home
It’s a damn shame that you had to go

Hook:
But now I know
I wasn’t right
For you

Chorus:
How do I take all this shit
When I know the last time we kissed
Was it wasn’t it the end

Bridge
I feel lost
you’ll never get me again
I feel lost
you’ll never get me again

Chorus:
How do I take all this shit
When I know the last time we kissed
Was it wasn’t it the end
Track Name: Temporary
Verse 1:
For so many years I’ve counted tears I’ve just been sweatin’
Got too many fears I can’t seem to fight all this rejection
And you’d be amazed at how bad it is to live with depression
It gets really tough sometimes it makes me sick to my stomach
I feel the urge to stay in bed almost every mornin’
And I cant argue that I’m dumb when I’ve heeded all the warnings
And I’d tell a little lie to myself if I felt I could believe it
I’m inside a hole I cant seem to get out of and I’m not good shoveling

Hook:
Sometimes it lets up
But I know I know it’s just temporary

Chorus:
It doesn’t stop
It follows me
No matter where you are there you’ll be
It’s haunting me
There’s no hiding
There’s just no way to escape

Verse 2:
I just cannot count the times I’ve wasted times counting the times
It’s all of those times I probably could have done something more with my life
You’d be surprised at how many regrets one person can have
I’m surprised how often I’ve looked back on myself looking back
And I know what I’d say as an old man if I had got asked to reflect
on what I did throughout my years and then share it with them
I’ll tell somebody that I spent too much time reflecting
Rather than living I chose to analyze living instead

Hook:
Sometimes it lets up
But I know I know it’s just temporary

Chorus:
It doesn’t stop
It follows me
No matter where you are there you’ll be
It’s haunting me
There’s no hiding
There’s just no way to escape

Bridge:
Temporary
Temporary
Temporary
Temporary

Chorus:
It doesn’t stop
It follows me
No matter where you are there you’ll be
It’s haunting me
There’s no hiding
There’s just no way to escape
Track Name: The Same Every Dream
Verse 1:
I gave you the utmost respect I
I had fears of what you’d do to me

Hook:
I dreamed about you last night
It was a nightmare
Just like it always is

Chorus:
I can’t seem to
get away from you
It’s the same every dream
You’re the same way toward me

Verse 2:
My predictions they were always right
That’s how I knew when to expect a fight

Hook:
I dreamed about you last night
It was a nightmare
Just like it always is

Chorus:
I can’t seem to
get away from you
It’s the same every dream
You’re the same way toward me

Bridge:
the same every dream
the same every dream
the same every dream
the same every dream

Chorus:
I can’t seem to
get away from you
It’s the same every dream
You’re the same way toward me
Track Name: Maybe
Verse 1:
Why don’t you fuckin love me
Why don’t you wanna touch my body
What the hells wrong with me
When I want you but I don’t feel lonely
I’m not lonely I don’t feel so lonely
There was no message or warning
Can’t help I fell in love with my friend
It’s bull this shit aint supposed to happen
Then go them open-ended questions

Hook:
Sing this song if you are lost
Least then we can both be losers in the loser club

Chorus:
Maybe its me
Maybe I am abnormal
Maybe its me
Maybe I expect too much
Maybe I fall in love with my bff and that’s somehow wrong
Maybe I don’t really know what love is
Maybe I’m an idiot
Maybe you don’t give a shit
Maybe you do I’ll never know
I’m confused so confusing
Maybe I need a new head

Verse 2:
I like being single
But I’m so in love with you
I’d love to say lets mingle
But that aint something I do
And I’d like to say goodbye but it’s like I do not get to choose
The way I feel all over chattin with you in my room
It so never fails it always puts me in the mood
Yo boy lets get together lets start a little groove
It goes me on top of you

Chorus:
Maybe its me
Maybe I am abnormal
Maybe its me
Maybe I expect too much
Maybe I fall in love with my bff and that’s somehow wrong
Maybe I don’t really know what love is
Maybe I’m an idiot
Maybe you don’t give a shit
Maybe you do I’ll never know
I’m confused so confusing
Maybe I need a new head

Track Name: The In-Between
Verse 1:
Brad is in his booth again
that’s what they say but that’s where it ends
No one seems to know what it
it’s really like to be Brad in the flesh
Cause every day there’s something new
that he posts up for your entertainment
But do you know what that song
of his is about or why it’s posted up

Chorus 1:
No one sees how lonely it is being me
No one sees me on the in-between

Verse 2:
Bradley is an attention whore
I know that’s how I’m always seen
All that boy wants is to be famous
that’s why he myspace freinded me
He’s a fame whore why else would he
make 15 fuckin videos a day
As if people are way too blind to
see that behind the persona it’s me
a man with feelings

Chorus 2:
No one sees how much it hurts being
written off in such a thorough way
Cause no one sees me on the in-between

Verse 3:
They can’t seem to get what
What my motives truly are
I think everyone just thinks
of me as a failing star
And I urge you to close your eyes
and just hear this one part
Please for once just see me
see Bradley on the in-between

Chorus 3:
No one sees how depressing it is being me
No one sees me on the in-between

Bridge:
You need a better bass line
You need to use drums right here
It’d sound better techno
Next time shoot the music video over there
Yeah it’s a cool song but its missing something
something something something
This aint what I signed up for
this aint a critique show
I need you to fucking know
I just wanted to relate to people like me
I live life bold
sorry if you just can’t take anymore
of Bradley Bradley Bradley

Chorus 4:
No one sees how lonely it is being me
No one sees me on the in-between
No one sees how much
it hurts being written off in such a thorough way
Cause no one sees me on the in-between
No one sees how depressing it is being me
No one sees me on the in-between
No one knows I spend so much of my time crying
No one sees how bad I feel on the in-between
In-between
Track Name: The Life of a Bradley Voorhees Song
Verse 1:
This song was really really fun to create
I made all sorts of crappy fuckin mistakes
Such is a typical Bradley Voorhees day
Tomorrow morning it’ll probably be the same thing

Hook:

Chorus:
This songs for you this songs for me
It’s what I choose it’s my sake of release
This songs for you this songs for me
It’s what I choose it’s my sake of release

Verse 2:
Its always fun to create blessed music
Sometimes when I can’t do it I feel so home sick
Show of hands how many of you can see this
I think I make so much music it’s obvious

Hook:
I hope you enjoyed watching me make this song

Chorus:
This songs for you this songs for me
It’s what I choose it’s my sake of release
This songs for you this songs for me

Track Name: This is It
Verse 1:
I’ve cut you slack that you did not deserve
I let you back despite all the hurt
I let you whine about your so-called misfortunes
And I wouldn’t have if I’d have known you were such a jerk
I did my little tiny dance all around you
Despite what all my fucking friends thought
I looked into your eyes and neglected to pay my dues to truth
And I wouldn’t have if I’d have known your ass was such a schmuck

Chorus:
And it’s a damn shame I like em just like you
And I’m to blame for giving you as much as I did
And your looks give you more than you are worth
And so this is it oh
And it’s a damn shame I like em just like you
And I’m to blame for giving you as much as I did
And your looks give you more than you are worth
And so this is it oh

Verse 2:
I gave you things that you’d never given me
I brought you wealth despite my poverty
I washed right over that there sour attitude you wear
And 1 showed you all kinds of positivity but you acted unaware
And I blew off everyone whenever I was around you
And I didn’t care what people thought about it
And I wouldn’t have put so much stock into your fuckin ass
If I would have only known you were such a fuckin putts

Chorus:
And it’s a damn shame I like em just like you
And I’m to blame for giving you as much as I did
And your looks give you more than you are worth
And so this is it oh
And it’s a damn shame I like em just like you
And I’m to blame for giving you as much as I did
And your looks give you more than you are worth
And so this is it oh

Bridge:
Yes it’s true
I’ve fallen out of love with you
It’s something I’d never thought I’d do
So this songs my thank you to you to you

Chorus:

And I’m to blame for giving you as much as I did
And your looks give you more than you are worth
And so this is it oh
And it’s a damn shame I like em just like you
And I’m to blame for giving you as much as I did
And your looks give you more than you are worth
And so this is it oh
Track Name: What Drove us Apart
Verse 1:
You might not have been the best thing for me
But at the time though you were the best I had
So I’ll continue crying and losing sleep
Cause I can’t help myself every time I look back

Link 1:
Fly away with me into my heart
Fly away with me into my thoughts
Fly away with me and then you will see
What drove us both apart

Hook 1:
Oh baby baby baby
I don’t know
all I know is I gotta go
all I know is I gotta go

Chorus:
Tell me that you still wanna wanna hold me tight
Tell me that you still wanna kiss me even if it’s a lie
Tell me that you still wanna wanna make our marriage right
Tell me that you’ll come back home without the urge to fight

Verse 2:
Things always got nasty when we were together
And I never told you but I just wanted to leave
I’d even make up dumb excuses not to see you
But now that we’re apart I want you back again

Link 2:
Sneak away with me into my soul
sneak away with me into my mind
Sneak away with me and then you will see
What drove us apart

Hook 2:
Hook 1:
Oh baby baby baby baby
I don’t know
I don’t know
Yo baby boy all I know is I gotta go
I gotta go

Chorus:
Tell me that you still wanna wanna hold me tight
Tell me that you still wanna kiss me even if it’s a lie
Tell me that you still wanna wanna make our marriage right
Tell me that you’ll come back home

Bridge:
Tell me do you ever wish you had me back
Please tell me all you think about is Brad
Do you ever long to see my pretty face again
Cause we’re not making history if we’re just friends
If you knocked on my door I’d tell ya come on in
Even though the very site of you makes me cringe
Some people even say I’m fuckin ignorant
To grant another chance to a fucked up hick

Chorus:
Tell me that you still wanna wanna hold me tight
Tell me that you still wanna kiss me even if it’s a lie
Tell me that you still wanna wanna make our marriage right
Tell me that you’ll come back home without the urge to fight
Track Name: Bradley Voorhees (Featuring MJ Rhythm) - Unable to Let Go
Verse 1:
I Swore next time we met I’d hawk a big loogie and spit it in your face
And although I did, afterwards I still invited you to my place
Guess I really should have thought that through a little more since you was tonguing me
Perhaps offered you a coffee, and then a little toothpaste, oh well
That’s just like me I do shit like that all the time it seems
Fuck it, at least I still got a voice I can use to cuss about you and scream
Guys like you don’t know what they’ve got until it’s gone, ’cause he leaves
I can’t wait til the day for you to die I seriously live for the day

Hook:
Oh how I’d break down almost every single night
Seems like the only reason you were around was to pick fights and put me down

Chorus Left:
I’m unable to - to let go of you
I’m in solitude - ‘cause I’m simply out of juice
I feel so damn looked through - not to mention used
I feel unsafe around dudes - think of all them as rude
You ruined me so true - gonna have to start over new
From the start first 1 then 2 - that thought makes me so blue
I should be done with school - shouldn’t put up with fools
I’m fuckin’ unable to - to let go of you

Chorus Right:
Don’t you know we’re not we (Not we)
Why can’t I break - break free (Break free)
doesn’t matter what I do (what I do)
There’s this ghost image - image of you (Image of you)
Don’t you know we’re not we (we’re not we)
Why can’t I break - break free (just break free)
doesn’t matter what I do (what I do)
There’s that ghost image - image of you (there’s an image of you)

Verse 2:
I swore I’d never go back down this road with you again
You were such a fuckin’ dick to me all the time yet here I am
Guess I really shouldn’t make myself these fuckin’ promises
Because I never seem to bother fucking keeping them
And now I remember all the ways you were to me back then
All your yelling, your annoying habits, and physical violence
And here I sit once again in my home putting the fuck up with your shit
See, this is why the last time I told everyone I wish you’d cease to exist

Hook:
Oh how I’d break down almost every single night
Seems like the only reason you were around was to pick fights and put me down

Chorus Left:
I’m unable to - to let go of you
I’m in solitude - ‘cause I’m simply out of juice
I feel so damn looked through - not to mention used
I feel unsafe around dudes - think of all them as rude
You ruined me so true - gonna have to start over new
From the start first 1 then 2 - that thought makes me so blue
I should be done with school - shouldn’t put up with fools
I’m fuckin’ unable to - to let go of you

Chorus Right:
Don’t you know we’re not we (Not we)
Why can’t I break - break free (Break free)
doesn’t matter what I do (what I do)
There’s this ghost image - image of you (Image of you)
Don’t you know we’re not we (we’re not we)
Why can’t I break - break free (just break free)
doesn’t matter what I do (what I do)
There’s that ghost image - image of you (there’s an image of you)

Bridge:
Sometimes hear it callin’ - callin’ my name (My name)
Wonder if I’ll ever - ever be the same (the same)
When my house is still- the floor begins to creak
I’m afraid I might hear you speak
My name
The same
The same
The same
My name (The same, the same)
The same (You’ll speak my name the same)
The same (The same, I’m afraid you’ll speak my name)
The same

Chorus Left:
I’m unable to - to let go of you
I’m in solitude - ‘cause I’m simply out of juice
